How Blue Can You Get?: Howard Tate and Lyle Lovett on American Routes on WCBE

On American Routes tonight, it's Howard Tate and Lyle Lovett on 90.5 WCBE!

When we asked Lyle Lovett why he didn't stick with journalism, he said, "it's hard to sing the newspaper."  From blues to country to Texas swing, Lyle and his large band can tell some good stories, and they're  not all about penguins.  We'll hear all about it (and more) when we sit down in conversation with Lyle.  Howard Tate is a master of soulful singing, bringing his bluesy touch and deep meaning to such classics as "Get it While You Can" and "Ain't Nobody Home."  We'll talk about his life in Philadelphia's gospel and soul scenes, and his path back to the stage today. 

That's all coming up tonight on 90.5 WCBE!
